warped vinyl, could it be harmfull?
English

Got a few records that are badly warped and make the arm bob up and down, is it a good idea do replace these or can my deck take it? The needle never jumps out of the groove and they sound perfect but the stylus looks like its getting beaten up.

Personally I would ditch them. The warp is not going to improve and sooner or later your stylus will start jumping grooves.

If the warp causes to bounce the arm to bounce out the groove, it's a non-starter. Tends to compromise the fundamental proposition for a record player ultimately - sorry, best dumped!

Agree: The downside of vinyl, eh?
